WINNIPEG - The high-flying Edmonton Oilers came into the night with their offence in a rut, scoring just five goals and going 0-for-12 on the power play in their past three games, all defeats.
The Oilers, led by Mark Letestu and Leon Draisaitl's greasy two-goal efforts, got three on the power play Thursday to help them sail past the Jets by a 6-3 margin.
The Jets, who had a five-game home winning streak come to an end, had only one successful penalty kill.
With the win, the Oilers improve to 8-1 this year when scoring at least one power-play marker.
Patrik Laine scored twice for the Jets - both on the power play - while Connor Hellebuyck made 23 saves, but was pulled after the sixth Oilers goal.
